minimum required length of a field to be encrypted

Postby Support » 01/30/09 02:41:50 PM

Q.
What is the minimum required length of a field to be encrypted ?



A.

If you are using the internal field method you will need to have a field length divisible by 16 or 24


If you are using the external method, It will depend on the number of records you will have in the file or plan to have in the file.

We put the external index in the file.

Examples



99 records in the file you will need at least 2 characters or 2, 0 decimal

100 records in the file you will need at least 3 characters or 3, 0 decimal

1000 records in the file you will need at least 4 characters or 4, 0 decimal
